Summary: Ease of use. Willingness controls. Lightweight and strong. With the lens Canon EF-S 18-55mm photos are poor. Buy this product for its low price and good features. It is a good product for those starting out in photography.
Summary: I receved camera well pack but inside the shutter was a dust and so no other way to get it out but sending this unused new never used cam to canon manufacturer, because no answers from this sale department. Also includ remoth control camera, is not working ....:) tripod is very very cheep $9.00 and instable.
Summary: Battery life is less than one would expect, even though the battery is not small.
Pros: Very comfortable camera to work with. Things are very logical.
Cons: The 18-135 mm STM lens does not provide high image quality. This was expected, despite the hype and $550 price. In fact, images are comparable, and sometimes worse, than images taken with old Canon EF-S 18-55 AF lens. Especially bad are images at F=35 mm, at all apertures (compared to old lens). Marginally better images are obtained at F=18 and F=50 mm. Increasing the zoom range twice had a negative effect on image quality.
Summary: When choosing the Canon EOS 650D, I spent a long while debating which lens to get. In the end I choose to get the 18-135mm lenses as I had the extra cash. I'm a beginner when it comes to photography and figured the larger lens would be more versatile. The lens it self suffers from heavy chromatic abrasion and vignetting. Enough so that it can effect the quality of the picture. It can be corrected with a program like lightroom, if you're lucky enough to have that.
Summary: As usual Cannon have made an excellent camera. However I have wondered if I have been provided with a grey import. All the details were in Estonian and the box had been opened and warranty documents and the instruction book removed. (presumably because they were in a foreign tongue) the upshot is I have no way of registering the camera for future upgrades or warranty claims should there be any
